dc.description Climatic events in recent years have had major impact on many North Dakotans. The summer flood of 1975 destroyed thousands of acres of crops in the southern Red River Valley, caused major soil erosion, destroyed bridges, and damaged homes, farmsteads, and other property. The statewide spring and summer drought of 1980 was comparable to that of 1934 and 1936, resulting in complete crop failure in some areas. These events are directly attributable to extreme climatic situations. At the same time, flooding has occurred in recent years when the climatic conditions would not be regarded as extreme and in areas where flooding previously has not been a serious problem. Old time residents of Enderlin, along the Maple River, state that flooding had never been a problem until about 20 years ago. Now, houses in a major section of the town have been abandoned because of repeated flooding.
